Savory Sourdough Pastries

Trying savory sourdough pastries. I’d never made some before so I thought I’d give it a go!

Pepper/Onion and smoked Gouda pastries

I used my standard laminated dough recipe and method up to the point of cutting/shaping.

I cut eight rectangles, cut holes out of four and then stacked.

PastryAfter rising and before filling

In hindsight I could have let rise a bit more (see lower left corner of top right pastry in pic above). Additionally, I should have done something to get the top pieces with the holes to stick to the bottom pieces. They slid during baking and the filling tended to “escape”!

Filled prior to adding smoked Gouda

Going forward I’m not going to stack the circle cutouts. They just tipped over. Better to have four.

Overall, I’m very pleased with this first attempt at savory pastries! Will experiment further and try to improve my technique!
